All versions will be front-wheel drive, the all-wheel drive xDrive will be optional, although most can only be combined with an automatic transmission. A six-speed manual transmission will be available for selected models.

The X2 will be produced along with the new X1 at the Regensburg factory of BMW in Germany.
